Default Washed Cart, now Buzzer on in F&R, will not move

I have had this 2006 48v DS Club car for about 8 months. When I first got it the charger would not come on or stay on. I eventually figured out it was corrosion. After I clean all the connections, it charged and ran fine. I use this cart for hunting and it had collected quite a bit of mud. I cleaned it thoroughly including hosing off the mud under the wheel wells. After I washed it. I drove it into the garage, where it sat for about 4 hours (ran fine, about 30 ft). I then got on it and backed out of the garage and drove it out of the driveway. About 50 ft out of my driveway the buzzer sounded and the electric braking came on. The cart stopped and would not go forward or in reverse. The buzzer stayed on in the forward and reverse position. I rolled it back to my garage and tried to reset the OBC by disconnecting the batteries. This did not help. As soon as I reconnected it, switched it to F and pressed the pedal, the buzzer continuously sounded. I had to switch it to tow to turn off the buzzer. I then plugged up the charger and the batteries charged fine. I waited overnight to see if something got wet during the wash that may have dried out. No luck, it still buzzes in both F, R and Neutral when you press the pedal and keeps buzzing when you release until you switch it to tow. Please help, I really donít know much about these carts and the people I know that have them do not seem to have any problems.

You've got water in your F&R Switch. You can take it apart and blow it out. It's really simple. Pop it out with a screwdriver and you'll see small tabs on the bottom of it that will allow you to separate the switch. Take it apart and blow it out. You'll be able to see how the rocker fits down in the bottom of it in case it falls out. If that doesnt work, unplug the connector behind the F&R switch and blow it out. It'll run after this.

I took out all the batteries because I saw some corrosion on the battery holder grid and the other poster's pics scared me a bit. I cleaned the area and the batteries. Cleaned all the corrosion off the cables and batteries. Took the F/R switch apart as suggested by the Dawg. I did not see any water in there, but did blow it out. I reassembled everything and it worked like normal. Every time I go through a mud puddle or wash this cart it gets upset. It is not water friendly. thanks for the help Dawg, I knew I could count on a fellow CSRA'er to help out. I am in North Augusta, SC.

Hey Gene. How are things with your new fleet? Did you ever get the keyswitch issue resolved? I spoke with Lance about it a few weeks ago.

I am out at the present time with knee replacement surgery. I guess he is fixed up, haven't heard him complain any more about it . I have a few more weeks before the doctor lets me go back. Was out there last week for a little while trying to help him resolve an electrical problem on a toro greens aerator. Good to see someone of your knowledge and expertise on this forum Later, Gene
